Eluveitie China Tour


Eluveitie is a Swiss folk metal band from Winterthur, Zurich founded by Chrigel Glanzmann. The band was formed in 2002 and their first EP, Vên was released in 2003. Vên was a studio project of Glanzmanns' but its success led to the recruitment of a full band. They describe themselves as "The new wave of folk metal". Eluveitie use traditional instruments amidst guitars and harsh vocals. The lyrics are often in the extinct language Gaulish. The name of the band comes from graffiti on a vessel from Mantua (ca. 300 BC).

Eluveitie infuses traditional Celtic folk melodies with Gothenburg-styled melodic death metal. Eluveitie uses traditional folk instruments in their music, such as fiddles, tin whistles and flutes, bag pipes and hurdy gurdies. The traditional folk tunes in their songs have been drawn from various sources, such as traditional Irish reels. While many of their lyrics are in English, some are in the ancient extinct Gaulish language. With the album "Spirit" Eluveitie went a big step forward, presenting a completely new style of Folk Metal to the scene - starting a new wave of Folk Metal.

All of the lyrics on their 2009 release Evocation I - The Arcane Dominion are in Gaulish (except the first song "Sacrapos - At First Glance"). Their lyrics are based on texts written in Gaulish such as prayers, invocations of the gods and other spirits. After that they turned out to become a real gem of folkmusic and the album again became a huge success (#20 in the swiss album charts). In August 2010 they were awarded the Metal Hammer "Up and Coming 2010" title at the Wacken Open Air So look forward to a very special journey through time.
